HELLO to all and many THANKS to everybody who has renewed their membership for 2018 -2019.  

We hope you have been enjoying the trips we have been on during the past year.  We have tried to include something for everyone.  For a few months this year we are offering two trips per month in order that everybody’s tastes are met.

The feedback received regarding the past trips and future trips you would be interested in has been really positive.  It is also easier to keep costs down if you can let me know you are interested in a certain trip as soon as possible.

We would like to introduce our Travel Club to new members; so if you know of any family or friends that might be interested please let me know and I will send them a list out. Alternatively they can come along to our monthly coffee afternoons held at the Hat Works 2pm – 4pm - please call for dates.  

My base is at head office Commonweal (Opposite the Casino).Please feel free to ring regarding any of the trips on the numbers at the end of the list, either via the Age UK Stockport Head Office or on my work mobile.  

Membership renewal is due on 1st April 2018.  Membership is £15 per person, £25 per couple. The increase from las year is due to rising costs of running the travel club.

Non-members are also welcome to come on the trips, although we encourage membership for cost and other benefits.

CONTACT

Please let me know as soon as possible if you are interested in any of the trips below or with any feedback and comments you may have.  

When putting your names down for the trips you are interested in please do so as far in advance as possible and let me know as soon as you can if you have changed your mind about coming on your chosen trip this would really help me  to book the most cost effective transport and for you to avoid any cancellation fees.  As always your friends and family are welcome to come along. Hope to see you all at one of the coffee afternoons at the Hat Works cafe.
